And so, what else is there to do besides recruit YKW to take part in my blind taste test?
At first, he couldn't taste the difference in the two, but upon further tasting he said the Mexican Coke was more "bitey," well whatever that means. Apparently YKW is no Chris Kimball. He won't be working at America's Test Kitchen anytime soon.
Bottomline, they do taste differently, but there isn't a huge difference. The US Coke is sweeter. And if nothing else, pick up a bottle of Mexican Coke in the international food aisle and try it out for yourself. It makes for a rather amusing Wednesday night activity.
